If you’ve been wishing on a Dark Star for yet more Grateful Dead-inspired cycling apparel from PEARL iZUMi, your wish just came true. The Ten Spot collection is a swirling, colorful homage to the Dead’s 1981, ten-day romp through Colorado. The collection includes jerseys, bibs, socks, and water bottles.
Bright brights characterize the kit.
“This Grateful Dead Ten Spot Collection is highlighted by the collision of visually striking colors with iconic tie-dye patterning, bringing the classic aesthetic to the streets and the trails,” said PEARL iZUMi designer Lucas Marshall in a press release.
The men’s PRO Bib Shorts ($185) and Classic Jersey ($85) utilize an eye-popping combo of tie-die-inspired gold and deep blue, while the women’s versions seize attention with bright purples and pinks. And of course, there are PRO Tall Socks ($25) in matching colorways.
If that’s still not channeling enough Jerry Garcia for you, consider the patterns on PEARL iZUMi’s Summit and Prospect lines. The Summit Short Sleeve Jersey ($60), Summit Shell Short ($100), Summit 3/4 Jersey ($65), and Prospect Tech Tank ($55) all capture the eyes of the world with a riot of neon blues, pinks, and yellows splashed over a subtle black and grey tie-dye motif.
“There really isn’t a more fitting subject for tie-dye than the Grateful Dead,” Marshall said. “It’s the perfect splash of patterning and color to pay homage to the band’s time jamming here in Colorado.”
